My own experience is that autoresponders are more trouble than they're
worth. The spammers don't care (or don't receive the spam), the
misfires get you in a lot of hot water. Best bet: filter and apply a
manual (or semi-automatic) process to spam.
I've used 'spam.pl' and 'ricochet', both perl-based scripts fro
disposing of spam. Under Mutt, it's possible to tag a slew of messages
and hit them all in one swell foop.

Are these opinions my employer's? Hah! I don't believe them myself!
